Summer ArtVenture 2013

Summer ArtVenture offers week-long studio art classes in a positive, nurturing learning environment. Each class provides focused attention on a specific media, skill or subject, and each week brings a selection of unique choices. All classes are taught by a professional artist and artists-educators who will help inspire and develop individual expression.

Morning studio classes (9:00am – 12:00pm) and afternoon studio classes (1:00 – 4:00pm) classes are available for all age groups.

Enrollment is limited to 10 students per class to allow for individual instruction and learning. Some classes integrate teamwork or collaborative projects.

FULL-DAY Option
The Full-Day option is required for students enrolled in both a morning and afternoon class in the same week. Full-Day option includes a supervised lunch hour with fun activities. Full-Day option is $10 per week, and the member discount does not apply.
